2013 Quinta dos Muros

Post by AHB » 21:17 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Quinta dos Muros from Portal. More scarlet in tone that the Bulas shown alongside, narrow rim. Lifted nose, full of sour concentrated blackcurrant. Generous tannins on the palate, with a green grassy tone mixed in with the fruit. The tannins become very fierce and powerful to give a very lively finish and a great length. This has the structure to age for decades. 88-90/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
